Thread: What Is Typical For Your Country & Your Region?

  1. #1

    What Is Typical For Your Country & Your Region?

    Hello everybody,

    I still find it amazing to play with friends all over the world. Therefore I also would be interested in learning more about typical things within the country and region you come from. E.g. what’s your local cuisine like, what are typical attitudes of your fellow countrymen, what is only kind of a cliché and what is really typical/representative for your country/region?

    I believe that this thread could be fun. What do you think? Would you like to join me and enrich this thread with your own experiences and your input?

    According to the forum rules we could speak about anything typical except Religion or Politics. (I just don’t want to be responsible for any abuses of forum rules )

    Would really love to hearing back from you!

    I'll start

    I won't speak for my country as it has too many differences from coast to coast. I'll speak for the province of Quebec.

    The only territory in America where french is the official language. 80% of the population speak french.
    It is 3 times the size of France and 4.67 times the size of Germany.
    Winter used to be a 6 months affair but it is shortening now with the climate change. Nobody complaint about a shorter winter LOL
    We produce a lot of maple syrup which is SO good and perfect to make sumptuous dessert.
    Visitors from Europe are impressed by the distance they have to travel from one region to another LOL They are impressed by the "wild" country we have everywhere and the majestic view, mainly along the St-Laurence River.
    We make many fabulous cheese.

    County; USA, State; Florida

    Best cliché in Florida, hurricanes, palm trees and alligators.

    Cuisines in my area are pretty eclectic. A little of everything.

    Because we are surrounded by water, water sports is very popular. As well as nature photography due to our diverse animal and plant life. Florida is considered a transient state, people coming and going all the time so attitudes vary.

    Country: USA
    State: California - the Central San Joaquin Valley - very agricultural area.
    Cliche: Earthquakes - waiting for the "big one!" Reality: we felt 2 mild ones in the past few weeks, after years of having none.

    Depending on your mood, in 1 to 2 hours of driving, you could be visiting the beaches of Carmel, Monterey Bay, Pismo Beach, Morrow Bay. If sand and surf are not your thing, the same driving time can put you in the high Sierra Nevada Range - Yosemite, the Sequoias seeing rivers, waterfalls, giant trees, and lots of snow in Winter (in non-drought years, of course). Add a little more time to your drive and there is San Francisco and Wine Country. Or go to the desert of Palm Springs.

    Food, like our geography is eclectic - every possible cuisine available. Of course, due to agriculture, our availability of fruits, vegetables, nuts, beef and seafood is unsurpassed - creating what is called "California Cuisine" as a category all its own.

    As to attitudes of the citizens, yikes!! We have it all - the good, the bad, the ugly, the bizarre! LOL!

    Edit: Another California cliche, and possibly most well known - Hollywood (and glamor). Truth: ugly, ugly, ugly.

    Welsh and proud of it. We're small but have some beautiful scenery. We eat welsh cakes, Welsh rarebit, cawl and leeks. We sing a lot and of course play some pretty good rugby.

    Country - USA
    State - Washington State

    We are in the NW corner of the country. Most commonly known for rain, coffee (Starbucks started here) and football (Go Seahawks!!). However, although people think it rains a lot here, that is actually only on the west side of the state. I live on the east side it and it's dry and hot. Lot's of farmland. I have always lived in this state - in every corner - and love it here
